Villains Revealed For Spider-Man 3

According to this article Kirsten Dunst confirmed that the villains for Spider-Man 3 will be The Sandman and Venom. Sandman is fine but I'm not really happy with the choice of Venom at this point. He is a pretty young character in the Spider-Man timeline and there are plenty of other classic villains they could use such as The Lizard, Electro, and Mysterio to name a few, Also The Lizard would be a perfect choice since Curt Connors played a role in Spider-Man 2.

Disturbed-10 Thousand Fists

Image hosted by TinyPic.com

I picked up this album the day it came out. I have all of their other albums and this one is great. This album rocks very hard and I highly recommend it for fans of rock music. Their music goes great when I play Halo 2 on Xbox Live.

Star Wars Battlefront 2, LA Rush, And Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects Demo Thoughts

All these demos were played on the Xbox.

Star Wars Battlefront 2:

This demo plays pretty much exactly like the previous version which is a good thing. I really enjoyed the first Battlefront game. The demo has two levels one on foot level and one space level. The space combat plays very well and is improved upon greatly in my opinion. I'll be looking forward to this one and I'm sure it will be pretty fun online.

LA Rush:

I though this was going to be like the San Francisco Rush games...boy was I wrong. The demo plays almost nothing like the classic arcace racers. It feels much more like Burnout and Midnight Club more than a Rush game. You have a city to race in and arrows pop up to tell you where to go. You also have a free roam mode where you can just drive around. Also when you crash it slows down and looks very much like the crash aftertouch in Burnout 3. Overall I am disapointed with the demo.

Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects:

This is a fighter based in the Marvel universe. The demo delt very restrictive as far as the fighting system goes. There were not that nany moves I could pull off and I ounly found the basic attack to be worth using. You can play as either Spiderman or Johnny Ohm in the demo. I only played as Spiderman. The interactivity with the enviroment was pretty fun. You can pick up objects and toss them at your opponent and you can smash them into objects and walls. You can with by either berating your opoeent until their health meter is empty or you can also win by a ring out. The graphics looked pretty good close up. The graphics of course get less detailed the further away from your opponent you are. I give this one a try when it comes out and I can play as the other characters. Also this game had one of the cheesiest lines I've ever heard in a video game. After winning with Spiderman he said "That's what we call a web slinging ass kicking." I know Spiderman is known for some cheesy lines but this one takes the cake in my opinion.

My Name Was Mentioned On Attack of The Show Yet Again

My name was mentioned again on Attack of The Show on Thursday's(9-15-05) episode. I asked what game the hosts felt had the most cliché character. Laura answered and said San Andreas and gave a couple examples. Tina agreed with her and said it was pretty stereotypical.

Nintendo Revolution Controller Finally Revealed

The controller for the Nintendo Revolution has finally been revealed. I think it looks pretty sleek. I just wonder how it will actually work. Several images of the controller show a remote controller like device plugged into it. It looks like it will have interchangeable parts so you can attach other controller devices. We’ll just have to wait and see when the Revolution is released.

Final Fantasy 7-Advent Children...Tifa's Hard Nipples

As many of you already know Final Fantasy 7-Advent Children has been leaked onto the internet. I couldn't resist and downloaded the movie. It is in Japanese and there are English subtitles you can get for it. The movie is awesome. Even though I've already seen it I definitely will still be getting the DVD release in November.

Anyway I noticed in one part of the movie in the church Tifa has really hard nipples. Must be pretty cold in that church. :)

I Just Ordered The 12 Inch Talking Scarface Tony Montana Exclusive Sideshow Edition

Image hosted by TinyPic.com

Web Site

I am on a waiting list for this figure though. i really hope I can get one. I love the movie and the figure both looks badass and has 12 lines of dialogue from the movie. The list of lines on the website did not say it had the line "Say hello to my little friend." Which is kind of disappointing since it is probably the most well known line from the movie. Oh well I�??ve heard that line enough anyway and the ones included are pretty good.

Anyway I really, really want to get one. I'll put it on display somewhere in my apartment.

A Roadkill Medal On Ivory Tower...WTF!?













How the hell did this guy get a Roadkill medal on Ivory Tower in Rumble Pit? As far as I know this map has no vehicles. Sounds like a cheat to me.
